Themes / Re: Arcadeflow theme v 5.2 [Release] Updated 16 August 2019
« Last post by zpaolo11x on Today at 03:46:36 PM »
I'm playing with some options to make Arcadeflow more suitable for computer games too... the first issue is that most computer games artwork packs don't feature "Wheel" artwork, at least I couldn't find them for Amiga on EmuMovies. This doesn't look good because you'll see a screenshot with the smooth gradient on top. There are two ways to solve this:

1 - When there's no Wheel art, the gradient is not applied, and you can then see the full snapshot
2 - Add a "text caption" instead of the wheel artwork, but that won't probably look very good...

I have coded the first option (see attachment) but I'm still thinking if the second one is better or not...

General / Scraping & Windows curl problem
« Last post by stephvax on Today at 09:34:43 AM »
Hello,

I don't know what is the state of scraping in the current git tree but I noticed that libcurl may not work under windows.
I had a SSL verification problem that might be quite windows specific.
That simply prevented every curl http request to work.

Just a suggestion, but you could add that line in fe_net.cpp near line 111 (at least for Windows platforms) :
   curl_easy_setopt( curl_handle, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER, 0 );

That allowed me to at least run the scraping phase succesfully, even if results are not that good (particularly with thegamesdb) on TurboGrafx16 stuff :)

Regards

Regarding the xml list for Amiga, try this one attached. :)

Thank you, wow that's a huge number of developers, even considering only the ones with more games... I already did some logos, I don't know how many use AM to manage computer emulation but the Amiga is the Amiga, I have to do it :D

I use it for Amiga and Spectrum. :) Without surprise, both have a huge list of games so a lot of work :D

Ouch, sorry and thank you.
Turning those off did the trick!

System is the latest Retropie with Rasp 3B+.
Thanks. Apparently there can be issues when developing a theme on windows and then running it on a Pi. This is why I asked you to try running it without the shaders. Anyway, I am glad you like it and that it is now working for you!  :)

I guess that image will work, I was hoping somebody had cooked up something a bit nicer.

Ah sorry for the confusion, I meant AF used as display theme.

Well this is intended: when AF is used as display theme the layout is reloaded when you select a theme, and at the time of layout loading there's no display name overlay (or it will be there every time you launch the layout).

Speaking of manufacturers icons, do you have an xml list for Amiga games? I got one from the web but with no manufacturer information...

Ah I see, thank you for the explanation.

Regarding the xml list for Amiga, try this one attached. :)
It says custom because I'm adding number of players and scores to the games with time since those were missing originally, similar to other systems lists.
